Legrand India inaugurated its first voice enabled state-of-the-art experience centre, Innoval, in the tech city Bengaluru, last month. Innoval will host Legrand Group India’s company products – Legrand, Numeric & Valrack.
The narrative at Innoval is based on the concept of ‘Source to End Usage’, where the products are arranged in relation to each other and according to where they fall on the energy and data distribution grid. The IoT enabled product offerings across multiple categories include- IOT switches, wireless speakers, assisted living, customised hospitality solutions, IoT-based energy monitoring, data centre monitoring system, intelligent PDUs, etc. The products are compatible with popular third-party voice-controlled devices available in market like Google Home and Alexa along with their own mobile applications and touch panels.
The design approach is based on the concept of Designeering. It has all the technicalities of engineering, but put forth in an intuitive and easy to understand communication system.
Innoval is also built from the perspective of providing training for all players in the electrical trade, from investors to installers.
The purpose of Innoval, is to support all of these partners (investors, system integrator, architects, panel builder, end customer etc.) by helping them to acquire new skills in order to better understand the market. Innoval also seeks to engage with direct consumers wanting to experience the brand before making a purchase decision. With the new generation becoming decision makers, the demand for products with innovation, technology has increased, and Legrand wants to tap this growing user base.
